yips
 n.— «Putting always was hard, if not impossible, for Moody, who spent 14 years in the armed services. He had trouble with three-footers. He seldom had a clue on anything longer than six feet. He had what they call the “yips.”…If you’re a golfer and you have the “yips,” you don’t have to be told what they are. You also don’t have to be told you’re in trouble.» —“Moody a Winner On Seniors Tour Moody Finds New Life on Seniors Tour” by Jim Lassiter Daily Oklahoman (Oklahoma City) June 15, 1984.
